The Life and Spiritual Legacy of Bruno Lanteri

Bestselling author Timothy M. Gallagher offers a remarkable biography of Father Bruno Lanteri, who overcame great odds to become the foremost spiritual leader of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, ultimately founding the Oblates of the Virgin Mary.

Drawn from Lanteri’s own journals, letters, and correspondence, Gallagher’s exceptional portrait reveals a man, once limited by his own impatience and lack of charity, who evolved into a leader of fierce spiritual courage, a religious reformer, a defender of the Pope against Napoleon’s command, and a symbol of perseverance who coined the term “begin again”—the official motto of the Oblates.

Complemented by extensive notes, a chronology of Lanteri’s life, photographs, and maps, and framed within the era of the French Revolution, the rise and fall of Napoleon, and the Bourbon Restoration, Gallagher’s richly researched volume brings to light the ministry and legacy of a unforgettable spiritual leader.
